Supporting your tachograph program
For more than ten years, Gemalto has contributed to numerous
tachograph projects that now extend to 34 different countries.
We know what works in the real world. We know how tough working conditions can be.
When it comes to tachograph solutions, our customers focus on 3 things:
- their ability to get durable and secure cards
- their ability to get high quality services : from delivery to local personalization
- their ability to get an evolutive solution to move along with new regulations.
Let's dig in.
1- Durability and security
Durability and security are the MOST important parts of a tachograph project.
And we are here to help.
There is a very simple fact to prove this.
Reports by MEBA, the international association of the tachograph card issuing authorities, show that return rates of Gemalto tachograph cards are much lower than the average for all smartcards in the field (well below 1% for Gemalto vs. around 4% overall)
Our laser-secured tachograph cards offer an exceptional level of security.
2- Quality of service
Our service teams with their broad experience ensure smooth running of new tachograph projects and the efficient achievement of mandatory certifications and type approvals.
In other words, our experienced team will save you time and efforts.
3 - Evolutivity
Gemalto’s product range
is constantly evolving, with both security enhancements
and performance improvements, through microchip
multi sourcing and introduction of new generation silicon
We have a recognized expertise in cryptography and security through several hundred
patents and over 40 products
with Common Criteria and ITSEC certification.
Intense tests and component qualification are done
by our R&D team - from radio frequency performance to
security and cryptographic performance.
Gemalto is also actively contributing to the work of
standardization bodies and organizations such as ISO,
CEN, and others. As a result, our products are in full
conformance with the latest standards and tachograph regulations in particular.

In 2012, Gemalto was selected by the United Kingdom Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to provide 40-80 millions of Sealys secure documents. The multi-year contract covers driving licenses, professional driver qualification cards (DQC), biometric residence permits – and tachograph cards.
Despite a tight project schedule, the necessary type approval by VCA, the designated Vehicle Certification Agency in the UK, was received in a timely manner. Production of the new polycarbonate tachograph cards with grayscale laser engraving and enhanced security features could begin in 2013, with one quarter of a million to be issued by DVLA each year.
